It's nice to see that they don't charge you for being thanked by Directv.They didn't charge for whatever you were supposed to see ether.

Read the rest of the page, where it lists any premiums you may have. DirecTV may have given you a free premium or maybe the gamepass service.

Nope. I already pay for the premiums and game lounge is only available if I pay $5.99.

My Services shows that I have ShowTime for $0.00.
The last time this happened it was because of my anniversary. Got it for 3 months, then was turned off. I wonder if they did it again.
The problem is I don't know when it started and nothing on the website tells me. The last time it did show when it started (one month before I noticed it. ) It would be nice to get an email about these things, and yes I do have notifications turned on.

Look at your last bill if not there will be something on your next bill. Usually a renewal notice.

Nothing shown on my last statement.
I will look out for the next one.
In the meantime I'll be looking through the Showtime schedule.:)

Usually, there is a note on the next bill when that shows on your on-line account.

Hmmm, maybe that's why I've NEVER gotten a free PPV coupon.
